Hi there,

I bought this interesting piece in a little town in South Africa in December. When we got home I inspected it a little further and realised that underneath the blue/green paint is engraved "MADE IN NEW ZEALAND".

So I know it was obviously from NZ, I'd just like to know if there's any particular significance to the figure with his hands clasped, or details at the bottom (besides 1980 which I assume is the date made).

Any help would be extremely appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Hi there Don and welcome to the site.
What you have is a Ti Toki liqueur bottle that depicts a Tekoteko.
Your one would have been made at Orzel Potteries Drury in 1980.
These bottles have been made by many potteries over the years and are still being made today. They are very popular and are sought after on auction sites.

Thank you SO much Ev. Really appreciate the help. As I mentioned, we love it, and it's good to now know the history of it.

Thanks again!
